Why March 7th Matters In Rock History
It's March 7th and here are some reasons why this day matters in rock history:
- In 2010, Bret Michaels found himself explaining his new song, "Nothin' to Lose," which featured a then 17-year-old Miley Cyrus singing about slowly getting undressed. He said that the lyric is not a reference to her and that the song isn't even a duet.
- In 1975, David Bowie's ninth studio album, Young Americans, saw its UK release. The album featured the hit song "Fame," that would become Bowie's first No. 1 single in America.
- In 1987, The Beastie Boys became the first rap act to have a number one album when their debut effort, Licensed to Ill, topped the charts.
- In 2000, men’s fashion magazine GQ named Oasis singer Liam Gallagher the Best Dressed Man.
- And in 2006, actor Jared Leto's band, 30 Seconds to Mars, began their first headlining club tour in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
And that's what happened today in rock history.
